Great variety of chilled cooked seafood, cooked dishes and local curried dishes (indian bread, laksa, etc). Very fresh ingredients used, evident in the chilled seafood section - crab legs, prawns, shellfish, etc.

Have been going to Straits Cafe a number of time, and last Sunday will be our last ever having Hi tea Buffet in that Restaurant. Been to Straits Cafe number of time couple years back, unfortunately quality and service has drop tremendously! We were extremely surprised on how the servers and host being so unprofessional. Courteously ask for napkin, the server actually came back and threw it on the table, ask refill of ice water and he came with a jug warm water and refill a glass and walk away. How rude can that be! Didn't enjoy our afternoon High Tea at all, and we left within 1 hour.
Straits Cafe was my first choice for my ROM Lunch Buffet 14 years, unfortunately the memories has turn mold!

the restaurant looks tired & not up to any particular style. I think it may have had a renovation in the recent past but it was pretty ordinary.
We had lunch here & the "world famous Laksa" wasn't even close
I thought it might improve for the buffet breakfast, but not so.
Everything about it was average.

...we couldn't help but try out the lunch buffet. A good decision, because we were very satisfied. They have quite a selection of food that it was hard to remember everything in detail anymore. I especially liked one dish, though, which was the baked rice with seafood. They also have a considerable selection of Durian desserts for Durian lovers out there.

Food was fresh and of very good quality. I would come back, if ever I get to visit this area of Singapore again. Hmm...
